Trump: After Munich Attack, People Are Saying My Speech Wasn't So "Dark"


In an interview with 'Meet The Press' host Chuck Todd, Donald Trump disputes criticism that his convention speech was too dark.

CHUCK TODD: Some of the negative [reviews] have been that it was a little dark--that there wasn't enough optimism in it. What would you say? It's not Morning in America.


CHUCK TODD: What would you say to that?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, I think the only negativity, and, you know, the hate, I call them the haters, and that's fine. But the only negative reviews were, "A little dark." And the following day, they had another attack, and then today you see what happened in Afghanistan with many, many people killed.

They have no idea how many, so many killed. Yesterday it was Munich. And you know, I know they're saying, "Maybe it wasn't terrorism. Maybe it was just a crazy guy." But in the meantime he's screaming, "Allahu Akbar," as he's shooting people, so, you know, we'll see how that turns out. And all of a sudden people are saying, "Maybe it wasn't dark at all." But the only thing that some people said, "It was a little dark. It was a little bit tough."

CHUCK TODD: Do you think it was a little dark?

DONALD TRUMP: No, oh, I thought it was very optimistic. To me, it was an optimistic speech, because--

CHUCK TODD: What makes it optimistic in your view?

DONALD TRUMP: Because we're going to stop the problems. We're going to stop the problems. In other words, sure, I talk about the problems, but we're going to solve the problems.
